Marina Towers architect really tall

Bernard Goldberg is really tall. Look at this photo. He’s so tall that he could have built Mariners towers by himself.

my first bulls game

Last night was my first Chicago Bulls game. I never went to see Michael Jordan play. Yes, that’s very sad. The Bulls handily defeated the worst team in the NBA, the Atlanta Hawks, 105-91. I went with a couple co-workers. We had very nice seats. We were about 20 rows behind the visitor’s basket. Some […]
